Indie Game Spotlight : Children of Liberty

capsule_467x181

If you’ve been to Pax East in the last few years, you probably heard of a game called Children of Liberty.

When four spies of the Sons of Liberty are arrested infiltrating The Province House, their children join Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and the Sons of Liberty to finish their mission and break them out as the threat of Revolution looms over the Colonies…

Players can switch between four kids ranging in age between 8 and 14, by Joining Joseph, Ally, Doug, and Sarah as they use their wits and their toy chest to defeat the Redcoats in this 2.5D stealth-action adventure retelling of Paul Revere’s Midnight Ride for kids and adults alike!

Children of Liberty is a game that focuses on stealth mechanics and has a very unique cartoony animation style. I`d also like to give huge props to the Dev team, Latana Games, on making the game historically accurate.

From the bit of gameplay I’ve played, I`m really looking forward to jumping right back in to beat the game and finish the story.

Rizeup’s Goat Simulator Adventures

1393973811-goat-simulator-1508x706_c

When the trailer came out for Goat Simulator, our staff all agreed that the competition was on for who could be the best goat. When the devs heard of this, they where more then happy to help this competition come to life. Below is a group review from the following: Farrington (Farrington Empire), FncWill, Firecrow, Elegy (Elegyofgames), and Rev. Think of the game and all their great highlights  and competitions. ;)

Goat Simulator’s very existence is a sort of self-fulfilling meta-prank, in which a spoof idea proved so popular that Swedish indie developer Coffee Stain Studios decided it should make it a reality. But how funny the joke is ultimately depends on you.

Ok, so, you’re a goat, in a town turned playground for havoc. So what do you do in goat simulator you ask? DESTROY THE TOWN AND BECOME KING OF THE GOATS!!!!  Ok maybe that’s not the main goal of the game. The main game consists of completing challenges related to score, finding and breaking things, or completing certain tricks. The final challenge is to explore the map to collect all 27 goat trophies to unlock goat variants called ‘mutators’, which can drastically alter how broken/crazy  your goat is.

Yeah , that’s about it for this game , it really isn’t that special , I mean , you can watch the videos below if you don’t believe me :

Disclaimer: Goat Simulator is a completely ridiculous game and, to be honest, you should probably spend your money on something else. Such as maybe pool your money together with your friends and buy a real goat, or making your own dev studio to make a better game. But if you really wanna waste your time playing this game, I guess I can link the steam page where you can spend your pizza money on it: http://store.steampowered.com/app/265930/
